A finely engraved map based on the larger map by Didier Robert de Vaugondy (McCorkle #755.37). The map is filled with detail of early settlements, Indian villages, and topography. The colonies extend to the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers, with North Carolina and South Carolina shown extending beyond the edge of the map (to the Mississippi River). The top left of the map is filled with the inset "Supplement to Carolina" which extends the map through South Carolina and part of Georgia on the same scale. With an oval title cartouche in the Atlantic at lower right. This is a later edition of the map with Cary's name and imprint removed. Earlier, it appeared in Seally's 1782 Dictionary, in Michael Adam's New Royal Geographical Magazine, and in his 1794 New Royal System of Universal Geography.

References: McCorkle #782.9.
